Clean Cooking Activities
Cooking energy is essential energy for industries, craftsmen, households and the general population. The population's access to energy must be ensured in order to guarantee food, health, economic and social security in Mali in a context where 75 to 80% of energy needs depend on the exploitation of natural resources. The demand for biomass now exceeds more than 10 million tonnes per year for cooking. In 2014, Yiriimex installed a pilot briquette production unit to supply households and industries with biofuels. The company has supplied the following consumers with briquettes, pellets and clean cooking technology: these are the Police School in Mali, the Women's Detention Soap Center in Mali, 5 regions (Ségou, Mopti, Gao , Ménaka and Tombouctou) of the displaced persons camps of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees through the NGO Stop Sahel, a few restaurants in Mali. And the project to install cookers in school canteens is underway with the World Food Program (WFP).
Our objective in this partnership is to have experience exchanges with all players in the cooking sector for the transformation of agricultural residues into biofuels as well as the production of improved cookers in order to contribute to energy efficiency and energy transition to new and renewable energies in Mali.
Also, to have a framework of exchanges with various investors for the achievement of our objective of 2 million tonnes of biofuels per year and the distribution of one million cookers to potential consumers in Mali by 2030. The implementation implementation of this project will contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in Mali and the Sahel.
